That being said, I think it's not so much open pomposity as that people fall into habits of self-soothing in regard to violence.

Constructing a moral synthesis which is both emotionally satisfying and intellectually consistent is difficult. So many of us are conditioned to prefer convenience over integrity/accuracy that we shirk difficult tasks like that.

So people (like the poor fellow who wrote the above) simply settle for allowing themselves to believe things that are emotionally satisfying but which lack any remote moral consistency.
